For this post I am sharing my second project created for Countryview Challenges,where the theme is "Nautical".
I created a card, and it was quite a challenge to come up with something, as really at the time I made it I did not have any supplies that fit the theme. (Since then my lovely blog friend Julie sent my some wonderful die cuts and some little shells, thank you so much Julie!!)
Well, nothing like a challenge right, - so I decided to create my own stuff.
I started my creating a background for my card. I cut a piece of manila card and inked around the out side with Antique Linen, Frayed Burlap, Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain Distress Inks.
Now for some embellishments:
A "rescue ring", made from a ring of card, cut with two Nestability dies.
I had a little chip board compass rose, I think t is from Tando Creative. I coloured it with Picket Fence crackle paint and then inked with some Walnut Stain Distress Stain and ink.
I stamped the word Voyage from the Classics 1 set and added that as my sentiment..
Her are some details still of the finished card:
The compass and ring all layered up together.
A Philosphy Tag altered with some Tumbled Glass Distress Paint.
Well, there you have it, a nautical card made with mostly home made embellishments. Hope you like it, and if you have not done so yet, why not play along with our challenge over at Countryview Challenges!
Thank you for visiting and stay inky!
